We stopped here as soon as we got off the Ferry and landed on Ocracoke (we ended up going back each day of our visit) - just for a cold drink & snack. We had fresh iced tea, cold beer and steamed shrimp. We sat at the bar & the bartender (Emily-we think) did a fantastic job handling all her... More

Nice lunch while visiting Ocracoke for the day. Food and service were very good. Right on the marina which was cool, we watched the Pelicans during our meal.

It was a very hot day.. We went about 7 pm, place was packed. It smelled like a fish market. Flies were everywhere. We were so disappointed.

I don't know what they are doing with the burgers here but they are beyond compare. Mouth-wateringly tasty, well cooked with amazing toppings...paired with crispy tummy fries and onion rings. Put that together with a cold drink and the view from the docks, it's intoxicating.

Best views and fresh fish sandwiches on the island! Although I miss when it was one of the best kept secrets on the island, now it can be difficult to get a table. Great waterfront bar and service is usually friendly and prompt - remember you're on island time! ;)

Burgers and shrimp are delicious. There pub fries are excellent. Outdoor dining so know what you are getting into before you arrive. Best tans I've even gotten started with a trip to sMacNally's and eating in the sun. Views of the harbor will take your breath away and get you in the Ocracoke spirit. As a side note, I took...

This used to be one of our favorites, but after asking about 2 different seafood dishes on the menu, we were redirected to the burger menu. Waitress told us they specialize in burgers?! What happened to the sMacNally's of yester-years. The view is beautiful, pelicans entertaining, but disappointed that you sit dockside and get directed to the burger menu. Seafood... More

Our dinner choice our first night in Ocracoke and it was so-so. The location is great as it is on the marina, we were treated to a spectacular show of Pelicans and there was a cool breeze coming off the water. I thought the menu was limited unless you like burgers and I don't eat red meat. My teenage son... More

We stopped in to sMacNally's for lunch. The place was packed with people, so we did not expect to have lightning fast service . But, it took about 30 minutes to get our food, and it was cold when it came out. The server did notice that we didn't eat much and asked if everything was okay. We told her... More

Great service, great atmosphere, and lots of locals. Large food portions at reasonable prices. Strong drinks, micro brew beers on tap. Excellent shrimp baskets, fish sandwiches, and hamburgers.

Thank BILLandDD
